Wedding Suits: What Do They Cost?
Your wedding day is one of the biggest events in your life, and it is only natural that you want to look your best. While everyone knows the importance of the bride’s dress, the groom’s suit is equally as important.
Yet despite its importance, many men do not budget for their suits correctly, so what does a suit cost? We thought we would take a closer look.
How much does a wedding suit cost?
When it comes to finding the perfect suit for your wedding, it is important to remember that your ensemble consists of more than just your trousers and jacket! To help you understand your budget, we have taken a look at the average cost of purchasing your wedding suit:
The actual suit is one of the biggest considerations that you will need to make. There is an almost endless range of styles to choose from, and you will need to choose between a two-piece and a three-piece.
Here at Astares, we have an extensive choice of suits to choose from, with prices for a three-piece ranging from £225 to £325. This is a big cost, but you should consider it as an investment. Unlike a bride’s dress which can only be worn once, you will be able to get multiple uses out of your wedding suit by simply changing the ties, wearing a different waistcoat, or wearing it as a two-piece.
Once you have found the perfect wedding suit, your next consideration should be the shirt you are going to wear with it. A crisp new shirt is key to boosting your confidence, and we have a beautiful slim-fit white shirt for £25 that will look fantastic with any suit style.
Next, you must consider the shoes you want to wear. This is essential to your ensemble and can bring your entire look together. The price of your shoes will vary depending on the style and brand you choose, and here at Astares, we offer a choice of Marc Darcy or Loake shoes, with prices starting from £104.99.
Finally, you will need to add that finishing touch to your wedding suit with a tie or pocket square. Whether going for the subtle matching style or a bright splash of colour, this is your chance to create the perfect look, and our prices start from £35 for ties and £12.99 for pocket squares.
When it comes to looking and feeling your best on your wedding day, investing in the right suit is crucial. Not only will it help to boost your confidence, but you can also wear it again and again on other special occasions.
Of course, purchasing a new suit can be a big part of your budget. However, it is an important part of your day and is just as important as the bride’s dress. Equally, in the same way that the bridesmaids should not look similar to the bride, you want your grooms’ party to look different to you, and investing in the right suit is the perfect way to do just that.
